Swedish regions are taking vaccine breaks due to side effects


Approximately 100 out of 400 hospital employees experienced mild side effects after the AstraZeneca vaccine in the Sörmland Region.

Two Swedish regions have temporarily suspended the use of the AstraZeneca vaccine due to an unexpectedly high number of people with mild side effects.

It writes SVT – the Swedish counterpart to DR in Denmark.

One region is Sörmland, where about 100 out of 400 vaccinated hospital staff have experienced side effects such as fever.

The reason for the temporary vaccine break is, among other things, that the region does not want to run into too many sick leaves at the same time.

– We stop, partly because we must have investigated this, but also because we do not want to have a too pressured staff situation, it sounds from Magnus Johansson, who is responsible for medicine in the region, to SVT.

According to SVT, the British-Swedish company AstraZeneca regrets the relatively high proportion of vaccinated people who experience side effects.

– It is not good. There seems to have been a greater proportion of side effects than we had expected.

– In studies, we have seen about ten percent vaccinating get these side effects, says Andreas Heddini, medical director of AstraZeneca in the Nordics, to SVT.
